Earth Under Water Worldwide Flooding Sea Level Rise (SLR)

2199 ratings | 580826 views
Miami, New Orleans and New York City completely under water it's a very real possibility if sea levels continue to rise. In Earth Under Water we'll see these events unfold as leading experts forecast how mankind will be impacted if global warming continues. They'll break down the science behind these predictions and explore ways humanity could adapt, including engineering vast dams near San Francisco, or building floating cities outside of New York.

This is bullshit from start to finish. How much ice do you suppose there is on Earth. NINE METRE rise in ocean levels? 30 feet? Bullshit. The oceans will rise 18 inches. Hardly a global extinction ''event.''

It’s amazing how utterly ignorant people are when it comes to science. They’re too lazy to educate themselves, too lazy to learn facts and want to go by faith than reality. Wish in one hand, shit in the other and tell me what you have.

I don't know who said it first but I heard Christopher Hitchens say ... four and a half billion years from now when the sun is going out and the planet dies, the life forms that watch this happen will be as different from us as we are from the life-forms that dawned on this planet a billion years ago..

RED ALERT RED ALERT Science will not save us from Science. We need to save ourselves from GLOBAL WARMING. If the U.N. had a plan it would start something like this. 1. The world’s total population would have to accept to not bring children into this world for the next 20 years. ( there are plenty of children that need love and a home ) 2. People that would like to end their lives should be legally and socially accepted.( euthanasia) (a persons dignified right)😀 3. All wars must stop today. ( people get to go home to live in there own places ) 4. The automobile industry must stop producing Fossil Fuel Powered social vehicles ending 2017. ( people get to still have a job in the motor industry building alternative vehicles ) 5. All countries that can ,will need to produce their own products (reducing ocean travel fuel burn)( sustain a work force) 6. All global business will need to move investment to full blown Renewable energy supply. ( they and their investors still make money ) 7. All countries will need to grow billions of tons of Indian Hemp. The hemp will provide for a huge carbon store by making everything you can from it. Replacing all petrochemical products. (diversity will create contentment and PEACE and UNDERSTANDING. ) 8. Socially all drug addicts will be supplied with there drug of choice at a place of convenience. At a cost that will cover the cost. ( social rest,the end of the black market and the decline in overall drug use and deaths.) 9. The amounts of Fossil Fuels (burnt) in the countries that will still need them will be calculated so as to keep the atmosphere stable as the gasses are reduced. ( the second and third world people will still have their first world comforts and thus we all become one world people accepting all cultures.) Sounds great hey. 10. Understanding that there is a lot more to UNDERSTAND and DO to save LIFE. The Scientific COMMUNITY have a colossal job in helping to do this. We need all of us to DO this, ALL OF US. And the list goes on. (Patience and faith in one another) Imagine the UN achieving that, when they can’t even stop the ethnic cleansing that happen daily.

Sea level rise is just another brand of Snake Oil being sold by the Environmental Commies.
I wish people wouldn't be so damn stupid that they constantly force land to become "habitable". Everyone knew that New Orleans and pretty much all of Florida was a bad idea to create towns on. Hell, if the land was all marsh/swamp land prior to building levee's to keep out water, you really have to ask yourself, is it worth it? Pretty much all of California is desert. The only reason California was forced to become habitable is because you can farm year round with the type of weather that most of California has. However, by making California habitable, you steal water from the Colorado river, which is now significantly lower than it usually is, because of a long drought that isn't allowing it to get replenished. People always do the same stupid thing after being shown they live in an area they shouldn't be living in. Once their houses are beat down by flooding or other natural disasters like tornadoes, they simply say "Well, I'm gonna rebuild". NOOOOOOOOOO YOU DUMB BASTARD!!!!   There's a reason a place is called tornado alley, and reasons they HAVE to build levee's. I mean, maybe it's best to let those people stay there and try to stick it out. We need to thin out the human race anyway. It's best to start with the dumbest people out there, then see who follows. The people that live/stay in areas that you know are doomed for failure, must be the same idiots doing this stupid Tide Pods challenge. You can walk in neighborhoods in Miami that aren't even close to the shore, and water will be literally bubbling to the surface of streets and yards. The ground that Florida is on is made of limestone and bedrock. The main part of the "Florida Platform" is full of large holes. Basically, imagine swiss cheese, that's what the ground looks like that Florida is on top of, except the holes are far bigger. As far as New Orleans goes. You simply have to be dumb as fuck to build a town that's right next to the coast/large rivers, when the ground is below fucking sea level. Maybe that's why some of the trashiest people in the U.S. live in New Orleans and Miami/Florida. Stupid people, living in stupid areas.

People need to pay attention to the details and realize this is all bullshit! The only one in control here is the Lord Jesus himself! We won't be here longer enough to destroy this planet even if it was possible! The Bible literally covers everything and is the only true truth! You are not very smart to trust men over God! The sky isn't falling but I would strongly suggest everyone get right with God while you still have time left. These are the end of the end days without a doubt and the end of the Bible is actually playing out in real time right in front of our eyes and so many are still sleeping including millions of Christians unfortunately! Wake up people! 1 Timothy 6:“20. O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called:”

LOL Things are going to get unpleasant for a lot of people long before 2100. Rising sea levels is only one of many problems that are kicking in because of climate change. You don't have to believe me just watch videos here on YouTube by experts. Even by 2030 many people are going to be at least seriously inconvenienced. The people with enough money to build underground shelters stocked with tens of thousands of canned food etc. will be safe for years from starving people who won't be able to afford food whose prices will inflate unbelievably as crop production becomes lower.

The one point that most people seem to forget is that the earth has plates that have shifted since perhaps the beginning of some specified time to present day? The proof they say is in the pudding or the archeological evidence of multiple sunken cities around the globe. The only truly scientific idea missing is that no one has put two and two together to figure why those particular areas sunk. Port Au Prince, the recent discovery of a sunken city off the coast of Cuba, the discovery of Cleopatra's palace near Egypt; these sunken areas represent some form of archeological history that proves the earths plates are going through tremendous changes in shorter periods of time than we first thought. The rise in sea levels have never been attributed to these facts yet...are they related? and if so, how much time is there until there is a need for for true action?

I know. There was _Before the Flood_ , published by National Geographic in 2016, and briefly available on their YouTube channel, but since has been removed. HBO/Vice made _Our Rising Oceans_ with various episodes, but only accessible with Northern America IP, and at the Vice website, it appears. Thus, google Before the Flood and Our Rising Oceans, if you want to watch documentaries published 2015-2016. Upcoming next month, Al Gore's sequel to An Inconvenient Truth. And there are a couple of other productions, for instance on Extreme Weather.

It is extremely unfortunate that we have to face the one last remaining chance we have left to save what might be left of our civilization and the biosphere. We must make war on global warming; literally all world governments must proclaim an all out war measures legislation. We must do this quickly and effectively. Within the space of two years at most we have to stop all greenhouse emissions, and I mean all; all of industry and all means of transportation must transit to clean energy. Simultaneously we must remove the CO2 that we have dumped into our atmosphere by reinserting it back deep into the ground by erecting millions of air capture sequestration towers on every empty land areas available along with the planting of the fastest growing trees. We will plant them in peoples’ yards, in parks, in ditches along highways, on roof tops, along with reforestation of livestock pastures and anywhere else possible. Also simultaneously, we must construct vast electric generating solar farms, wind generators on all agricultural lands, thousands of geothermal energy plants, tidal generating installations and any other clean energy projects such as dams, nuclear reactors, and zero energy from unacknowledged special access projects if they exist. If you think all of this is ridiculous, I agree that it is. However it is our only chance. The cost of this will be at least 80 trillion dollars. This will be expropriated from the fossil fuel corporations, from the personal fortunes of their managers and associated industries. They knowingly caused the problem and profited immensely by it, so they will pay for it. For more details contact me at [email protected]  I will email you my paper on how we can do this. This movement requires millions of like-minded members, if there is any success. WOGW association.

CO2? Same CO2 that plants use in respiration? CO2 in O2 out, so PLANTS sequester carbon? Maybe we need more plants, less desertification, stop clearing rain forest. Utilize offshore cloud whitening if necessary. Easy problem. Oh and people are okay too, just naturally very competitive about resources. It's historical tradition.

It may not be a complete answer to rising Ocean levels, but one option to stem the tides would be ... Identify areas below Sea level now. I.E Death Valley. Build canals to connect them to the Ocean. Then flood them. many of the large Deserts on the Planet are similar. We could create large areas of useable land around the new Man made inland Seas.

Interesting tidbit, from about 0:26 to 0:31, they show an upward angle at SW 12 Street and Brickell Bay Drive in Miami with what appears to be a water effect over the lens. However, this is an actual intersection that floods with up to a foot of water during some fall king tides, including in October of this year, of which I took many photos and some pretty bad videos but you get the point. I doubt they caught that footage just right with an underwater camera, but it is an interesting coincidence they chose that shot. Perhaps they knew about that spot, which would be a pretty damn subtly accurate detail.

In the 70s they had us believing that there would be no oil in 25 years! Think about all the food/health misinformation over the years. Why should I put any emotional currency into this? Show me one city that currently has no flooding issues, but is projected to have issues due to rising sea levels that is building sea walls. When cities/gov'ts start to put their money where their mouths are, I'll begin to believe in climate change. Cities/gov'ts that currently have no flooding issues - show me one city planning and currently SPENDING for the future. Don't just tell me, document your evidence, show me money spent, show me the walls. Eventually this too will pass. They'll say new data were discovered so all thing have changed. The elites can make the little people believe anything. Just look at Venezuela, Puerto Rico, central banks, the European Union (trying to be the United States of Europe instead of a trade organization), look at the housing bubble, the student load bubble, the dot com bubble, in the late 70s was a silver bubble (look it up), in the 80s savings and loan bubble, the elites can create any bubble they want and then make it disappear any time they want. Whenever it benefits them - REPUBLICAN AND DEMOCRAT!!!! The little people are the fools. Leonardo DiCaprio running around the world preaching about climate change on a private jet. He own 5 mega mansions all heated and air conditioned with huge lawns and gardens. Big wigs fly in on private planes to climate change meetings in paris and other places. Believe the BS all you want. I conserve to save money, not because I believe in climate change.

Camuy, how do you know it is real? The last so many years that they have been talking about CC is just a tiny blip of the universe's existences. Don't trust the data - they make that whatever they like so they can profit from it either financially or with votes. Funny how we are so doomed by CC and also doomed by the federal debt, but no one talks about the federal debt because the only way out of that is to save money, not spend it, only way out of CC is by spending money so they love that. They talk about how CC doomed grandchildren and great grandchildren, the debt will do the same, just a matter of time like CC, but people just kept finding ways to spend rather than save. I find it interesting. I have no kids and am old enough for things to last until my death so makes no difference to me so just saying all very interesting to me how the 2 are veiwed. Always a bigger excuse to spend rather than save for the grandchildren's well being.

D Dixon (2 years ago)
I find it amusing that the environment is granted a major crisis and the boogie man is "next generation" will not survive (something like that). Yet we have the national debt which is definitely a crisis that will also greatly impact the next generation of every day types and it doesn't get any play as a crisis. the difference. one is about spending/making money from a crisis and one is about saving money due to a crisis. so see i'm not playing along no matter real or not so the big players can make their money. and you say if i don't believe i don't believe in science. nope, i don't believe the data, i don't trust the data. i think the data has been manipulated for a particular outcome so players at all levels - universities to corporations - can all make money because part of the money is feed back into campaigns. sorry, our govt is corrupt now. this is what you get when people don't trust their gov't. this is what you get when gov't officials don't go to jail, this is what you get when the gov't after the biggest banking crisis of all time doesn't send any bankers to jail, this is what you get when dodd/frank is so complicated to compile only big banks have the resources to compile so puts smaller mid-size banks out of business and sends their customers to the big banks to make them bigger, this is what you get when the US kills the Libyan leader who was cooperating with the West for corrupt reasons rather than for national security interests. but i'm seriously tired of that cover the US acting as terrorist abroad in the name of "national security interests." so it isn't about not believing in science, it is about not believing the source of the data which is our gov't which wants funds for campaigns. the USA is the EVIL EMPIRE! DON'T FORGET IT. I SHIT ON THE US FLAG AND WHIP MY ASS WITH IT. AND I AM UNFORTUNATELY AMERICAN. so when your kids are living in poverty because of the national debt, go build a house of hay/mud.

Dwayne Dixon Who are the "they" that stated oil depletion in 25 years. Was it 97% of all geologists making this claim or was it a Time magazine reporter who found 1 geologist to state this. Please provide proof that this was the prevalent view of geologists. And that they were not just talking about the U.S. New Orleans IS spending billions building a wall and the walls are shown in this very video you are commenting on. 97% of the climatologists on this planet state unequivocally that climate change is real and that human actions are causing it to spiral out of control. We have already reached too high a level of CO2 in our atmosphere, and it continues to get worse. Climatologists are the ONLY real experts in this and they should be listened to. Or we can just fucking go extinct. For realsies. Facts: CO2 does prevent heat we get from the sun from escaping back out into space. We have greatly increased CO2 levels in our atmosphere since the Industrial Revolution. We know. We have measured it. Ocean levels are rising. The temperature has increased. We know. We have measured it. In other words, climate change IS real. Deny it all you want, but maybe you should stop listening to the propaganda put out by the fossil-fuel industry. And don't have any children.

+otherworldtrader1 What will we do about the millions of birds that will die with I guess millions of windmills turning? Also to generate power from streams/rivers requires dams and last I heard environmentalist were hell bent on preventing dams from being built. They prefer fish to be able to migrate. And more than a few windmill projects have been disapproved, because rich people (rich liberals, go figure) don't want them in their line of sight. And what do we do when the wind isn't blowing? There aren't strong winds worldwide. I've been watching sailing videos lately and many times sailors can't go anywhere, because the wind isn't strong enough. The are only but so many rivers too. The world population is increasing with more people entering the middle class wanting autos and air conditioning.

One looming question that I don't see being addressed by rising sea-levels: the amount of ocean contamination from toxic products contained within the building materials that will become submerged, not to mention some of the landfills and just plain old garbage.  What the hell kind of impact will that have?  It could be horribly lethal to all animal and sea life.  We already know that the ice-age melts are cyclic; we're still in the process of the melt.  Its no question as some jack-asses will assert, as to whether or not this is happening: its already happened multiple times- its just the pulse of our planet.  But with modern humans and our building, synthetics, toxins, etc., it only spells disaster for everyone.  If we don't start preparing for this now on an epic scale... we're pretty much -fukked.

what a buncha bullshit. tidal peaks notwithstanding, the oceans are NOT rising because it would be visible on ALL the ocean shores, not just a couple remote islands claiming compensation damages. just take a glass of water and drop a stone inside it. does not the water level equalize all around as it comes up from after being displaced? that means florida should be already disappearing too, not just those remote sea level islands. well i was just in florida . surprise! it was still all there! since there's no way to guilt folks into paying compensation for a dropping ocean floor, those islanders claimed it's the ocean that's rising, not their land that's sinking.

+Sandra Larson Floating cities already exist, it's not pretty because we don't do sewage properly, what goes into the drain can be purified as wastewater using algae, they clean the water well so make full recycling easy with under-the-sink style filters. Then you get biodiesel for the car, heating & cooling from the algae.

There's a wonderful company that has already drew up the plans for such (Lotus Cities).  But the coastal cities are already in a position where they'll have to be abandoned.  We have to adapt to slightly smaller land masses.  There's also advanced stage designs on underwater cities, which is a logical option.  But who knows what direction the pinheads at the 'top' will push us.  Best to live away from the coasts, inland in the lush area's that have not fallen victim to rising temperatures in the past cycles (over millions of years).  Yes, they do exist.

+j mcmann Correct most of sea-level rise is thermal expansion, and, Greenland's ice can't be stopped this video on Eastern Antarctica beginning to suffer the same warmer-water melting from below for Totten Glacier that drains a huge amount of ice. [research video; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Djf61DK08go] Both ice-sheets are ablating now the loss-rate exceeds accumulation, from GRACE data. As for the thin-skin of water it holds most of the excess heat having warmed 1.8C/3.2F already and it's soaking 93% of the total heat, not the air or land, and, about 1/4th of added CO2 grossly acidifying it dropping pH 10-times faster than a mass-extinction. Is that you're goal, to have a mass-extinction?

Dipshits ..a sphere expands with heat volumetrically and dew point is related to heat of air..ergo..yoru shores will recede and the THIN skin of water on earth will become % wise less

yeah, maybe. but we aren't on a sphere

Antarctica isn't the most pressing problem.... Greenland's ice sheets will melt enough to slide into the North Atlantic long before Antarctica has any major melting...Greenland's sea ice which holds the land ice back will melt and separate from the land allowing the land ice to quickly slide into the sea...that will not only raise sea levels but also alter the ocean currents cycle known as the thermohaline circulation...with the massive influx of fresh water that cycle will stop in the north Atlantc bringing weather changes overnight to Europe

3 or more ways that make worldwide flooding 1.gobal warming 2.pollution 3.heating the earths layer if this happens we can just go to outer space and make a heat ray to vaporize the water NOT REAL

+Ryan Caceres a 4th way: buy like 4 trillion bottles of water and pour it into the ocean.
